Zip Trip: Anacostia one of DC's best kept secrets

- Summer fun is in full swing and so are our FOX 5 ZIP TRIPS! This week we visit the historic District of Columbia neighborhood of Anacostia!

The neighborhood, located in southeast D.C., is one of the city’s best kept secrets. Its location makes it a great place to raise a family – plus, new restaurants and stores add to the delightful hustle and bustle!

Take a stroll down Good Hope Road and Martin Luther King, Jr. Avenue, stop by Fort Dupont Park -- and no trip to Anacostia is complete without checking out the "Big Chair!"

Plus, during all of our summer FOX 5 ZIP TRIPS, you'll have a chance to win an all-new 2016 Mazda CX-9!

There are so many fun things to do when visiting Anacostia it’s hard to keep count! Here are THE 5 MUST STOPS that you just can’t miss when taking your own Zip Trip!

This week's Dunkin Donuts Firehouse Friday DC Engine 15.

Check out our Geico Hometown Heroes - Perry Moon and Dionne Reeder!
